attract a full share of attention from the
multitudes that annually visit the Iowa state
fair ; and will no doubt serve to advertise in
splendid form the advantages of this county ,
whose cheap and fertile lands ought to draw
an immense immigration from Iowa and
other eastern states.
S. H. Colvin requests us to urge all farm
ers who will to bring in produce for exhibi
tion at the Nebraska state fair , not later than
by Monday night. We hope this call will
receive prompt attention , as Red Willow
county should be represented at the state fair
by a splendid exhibit of her agricultural pos
sibilities ; and this can only be done by the
farmers taking an active interest in providing
the raaterial.which will be properly arranged
for exhibition to the best advantage by those

success as its flyers to Chicago. The train

Denver ! News.
A proposition is being considered by offi
cials of the llio Grande Western which
makes a new departure in the attitude of
railway corporations toward employes.
Some time ago the company organized a
hospital department , requiring all persons in
its employ to contribute fifty cents a month
toward the fund. The fifty cents is deduct
ed monthly from the regular salary , and a
fund amounting to almost § 20,000 has ac
cumulated. It is now proposed to go a step
further and set apart § 12,000 from the sur
plus for the relief of permanently disabled
employes or persons honorably retired after
long service. It is also a part of the plan to
assist widows and orphans and thus enlarge
the scope of the humanitarian work of which
the hospital is only one feature. A happy
peculiarity of the system of assessment is
that the president of the road regularly con
tributes as well as the person receiving the
smallest salary on the list. Denver News.

An effort is being made , or at least
the project is being talked up among
horsemen and others , to secure the con
struction of a mile race and training
track in the city or vicinity. Such a
track would cost about one thousand
dollars , and if sufficient encouragement
is met with , an association will be
formed and the track be made this fall
yet. THE TRIBUNE is aware that such
enterprises come high , yet there are
paying race tracks in smaller cities
than McCook , and we hope the matter
may be thoroughly and carefully con
sidered by our horsemen and citizens ,
as there are decided commercial advant
ages to be secured to a town by a first-
class track such as is contemplated.
Conductor F. S. Granger , who has a
stable or. eighteen thoroughbreds ,
among others , would move here in the
event the track is secured. The pro
ject is worth serious attention.
